New library resources: Expand your education research with Education Source and Google Scholar!
October 5, 2012
Doherty Library has acquired an important new resource for education research: Education Source, a database from EbscoHost. The database combines Education Research Complete with several additional databases obtained by Ebsco when it acquired the H.W. Wilson company. It is the largest and most comprehensive full-text education resource in the world. Search it along with ERIC for the fullest coverage of the education literature. With its additional materials and improved indexing, you might find new resources for your topics even if you have already searched our previous databases thoroughly.This database was purchased by the library with the help of Title V grant funding.
Google Scholar, the giant search engine for academic research from Google, can now show links to UST’s licensed full text resources! If you adjust your Google Scholar settings, it will now tell you whether the library has a copy of each article result. In addition, if you look up an article in Google Scholar and we have full text of it in one of our databases, you can now click directly to that full text through a link called “Get Full Text @ UST” that appears next to the Google Scholar result. Instructions for setting this up are here: http://campusguides.stthom.edu/googlescholar.
Remember that you can get answers to your library questions at askus.stthom.edu.
